Thoroughly enjoyed the meal on saturday night. Excellent food and service. Will be back !
Beautiful evening with delicious food to celebrate a special anniversary
We have been to Brunel’s on a few occasions and have never been disappointed. The food is absolutely out of this world and the service is first class. We always have a fantastic night when we visit.
We enjoyed a superb meal at Brunel's. The cuisine is innovative and full of flavour and use of local ingredients. Service was friendly, knowledgeable and helpful too. It deserves its awards.
My daughters and I really enjoyed our experience in Brunel’s and felt completely safe in these strange times. The service was expert and friendly. All dishes were unique and delicious although I found one component (sorry I don’t remember name) of my halibut meal rather bitter.
As usual, this little gem that punches up there with the best that NI has to offer does it again. For those that have not tried you are missing out - this is exceptional food with the VERY best service.
Excellent service as always, very friendly and personable, despite these difficult times. We felt safe and well protected against Covid 19.
Great food in a relaxed environment with very friendly knowledgeable staff. I can highly recommend
The dessert (panna cotta) was utterly disappointing. It tastes amazing but the serving size was ridiculously small. Some training needs given to the staff as the server advised the chowder as a special request would come as part of the lunch deal and then we were charged separately. Between the dessert and the bill an otherwise lovely meal left a Bad taste.
Absolutely perfect, top quality service with a smile, outstanding food and quality. Will Definitely be returning next time we are down, provided we can get a table :-) it certainly knocks sport off of Deans in Belfast.
Excellent meal. Really enjoyable experience looking forward to going back.
Best place in town, puddings were fantastic
Excellent food, very seasonal, could do with an extra fish alternative as well. Desserts were very small, an Irish coffee or baileys coffee should be allowed as a substitute if you dont want your third course to be a dessert for the same price as three courses Overall food is of a very good quality.
Busy night and the restaurant clearly couldn’t cope. Over an hour for our starters and an hour and a half for our mains. Staff are always friendly with a nice atmosphere
So happy to be back at Brunel’s. The food is delicious and the service is top class. The staff are so helpful.
Fabulous bar service Amazing Guinness and cocktails Great staff The round table is a particularly nice setting
We enjoyed our time in you place. The food was lovely and we were 30mins late due to a traffic jams in Newcastle and the manager Fiona was very understanding which we were thankful for. Our servers were also lovely and hard working. Regards Archie
Excellent meal, ambiance and food . Have recommended to several friends already
Chef is super creative - tastes are amazing. Staff so friendly & attentive. Timing between courses generous. If you are in Newcastle you must try to eat here if you like great food ! PS Fiona is a superb front of house !!
The only thing that I would be picky about is having the vegetables come as a side order, i think they should be included in your meal. Yes if you want extra by all means charge for that. But other than that we had a lovely meal and will come back again.
Good food, portions where too big
We had a beautiful meal, the service was first class, the ladies where so lovely and friendly. They greeted everyone who came through the door with such a lovely welcome. The new premises are very classy with such a lovely atmosphere. We will definitely be back again. The staff, food and wine all top class!! Well done to all at Burnels for a superb evening!!
Really enjoyed our dining experience at Brunel's. The seafood was outstanding. The menu was mouthwatering and everything came out perfect, the specials were fantastic, particularly the sole. The steaks were cooked to perfection. The service was friendly and very professional. We valued your efforts to comply with Covid and felt very safe. Thanks Fiona.
Superb as always.
Had a beautiful meal on Sunday evening, we will definitely be returning. The staff were efficient and the Cocktails are delicious. Thank you
